Today's Standards

"You want to fit in

But you don't know how

Do you want to be thin

And make your ribs stand out?

Today's standards are

It's okay to cry

And bleed until you die 

Make dure you have skinny thighs 

But i promise it's a lie

You'll be perfect to the right guy

You don't have to do drugs 

Or get high

Tell yourself it's just one time

It won't hurt if you only try

Because today's standards are all lies."
